Increasingly since this site was put together he subject of Radical Faeries has been injected into some of the discussions and even hold a couple places here on gayburners.com in the Groups section [Radical Faeries in Groups]. There is some thought that these are two worlds that can fit together.
There is an influence in San Francisco among such legendary camps as Comfort & Joy that operate under the RF flag. Many of the key leaders in that camp these days are also leaders in that community.
Kyle and Kitten will probably be the main people injecting some content here from the RF part of the community. They will talk a little more about the marriage of these two groups as time progresses. Certainly their web site www.playajoy.com has links and resources that could be very valuable.
What is a Radical Faerie?
There is a hesitation to define that here, but the description on the group now was borrowed. So borrowing once more:
“Generally, we tend to be gay men who look for a spiritual dimension to our sexuality;many of us are healers of one kind or another.
Our shared values include feminism, respect for the Earth, and individual responsiblity rather than hierarchy. Many of us are Pagan (nature-based religion).
Our defining events are Faerie Gatherings, where we’ll get together for an extended retreat, usually in the woods, separated from the outside world. A lot of that time is spent in “heart circles,” where we open up emotionally.
Of course, that’s just this circle’s attempt at a definition.” – radfae.org
How does this tie to the Burners? Well – hello! It sounds like a trip to Burning Man in this quote alone. As time progresses more information will come, but the core of this site is BURNING MAN! QUEERS AT BURNING MAN or ….or…. living the life of a Burner by the 10 principles.
